If you provide what type of files you get this error with, it might help us determine what codecs you need and how to install them. Details please.... cause were not pyschic... :confused:

Make sure you got the default Realplayer 9 Codecs as recommend by mplayer on their site: mplayerhq.hu

You can select the different codecs in the settings config utility in mplayer [properties I think]. try switching between the two - I have found that using the Microsoft codec and MPEG 2 and 3 codec for audio - this config plays everything so far - and I play recent divx movies etc etc.
